Update on the 2014 NW Teaching Social Justice Conference


Dear Portland Area Rethinking Schools friends,

We have now posted the program for the 2014 NW Teaching for Social Justice Conference at our website, www.nwtsj.org. Please go and check out the amazing line-up of presenters and sessions this year. We’ll have three sessions of almost 60 workshops to choose from. Please register at www.nwtsj.org.

Where: Madison High School, Portland
When: Saturday October 18

The conference is still just $30, and $5 for students, including those in teacher education programs.

And if you can help offer housing in Portland to folks coming from other places, please contact Laura Czarniecki, lauraczarniecki@gmail.com, who is helping match people who have room with those needing places to stay.

Dozens of community organizations and publishers will also be displaying their wares in a Resource Fair.

Join us for this inspirational and idea-packed event. Re-ignite your commitment to social justice teaching and quality education for all. Register at www.nwtsj.org.

See you in Portland.
